The Role of Livestock in Economic Development and Poverty Reduction

  title={The Role of Livestock in Economic Development and Poverty Reduction},
  author={Martin Upton},
Globally, agriculture provides a livelihood for more people than any other industry. Growth in agricultural production and productivity is needed to raise rural incomes, to support the increasing numbers dependent on the industry and to meet the food and raw material needs of the faster growing urban populations. Enhancing agricultural productivity contributes to industrial growth by providing cheap labour, capital investment, foreign exchange and markets for manufactured consumer goods.
